Clive Allen is hoping for a repeat performance when his reserve side return to action tonight against Portsmouth at Havant & Waterlooville, kick-off 7pm.

Goran Bunjevcevic is back after recovering from a foot fracture, while Anthony Gardner and Wayne Routledge are set to feature for the second time following their return from injury in last week's hugely impressive 5-0 win over Crystal Palace at Stevenage.

"The way we've been playing, the results we've had, the clean sheets we've kept - all those things need to happen again," said Clive.

It is about approaching it in the same way, again there are a few changes to the side with a couple more seniors coming in and they know what is expected of them

"We have done well in the last few weeks and we want a continuation of that. I'll be reminding the lads of the 3-0 defeat we suffered away to Portsmouth last season and we know we need to play well.

"We know the situation the football club is in at the moment with Joe Jordan in charge. With the liklehood of a new manager coming in, everybody there will be keyed up to give us a very difficult game.

Squad: Forecast, Kelly, Lee, Gardner, Bunjevcevic, Routledge, Davis, O'Hara, Hallfredsson, Rasiak, Barnard, Button, Mills, Lewis, Barcham, Daniels.
